Beautiful Mostar #2


Hye~

Okay jom sambung cerita Mostar yg seterusnya. The day after we went to Kravice waterfall, the plan is Abg Edin (gitu haha) will take us to Blagaj Tekija and Pocitelj around the afternoon. So we got up early that day cause we don't wanna miss any single moment here and was planning to actually go sightseeing around the city Mostar itself. Cause it was very close to our house. Here you can expect to find the well-preserved old building, of course the famous Old Bridge or famously known as Stari Most, Koski Mehmed-pašina džamija (an old mosque but you have to pay to enter. But you can get a magnificent view of the stari most from this mosque) and let's not forget the only place I have enjoyed food the most when I was on this trip which is great food :D (of course the magnificent kambing haha). Since the majority of the citizen here is Muslim so there is no problem to get halal food here. So these are the pictures around the old city of Mostar. From our house to the city is only like a 5-minute walk so it is very near.


I dont know what does these words mean hahaha


If you look closer you can see the marks of the bullet from the war. 

This way to the Stari Most!

Tada~ gigih turun bawah nk tgkp gambar haha. There was actually one person who attempted to jump from the bridge and after a LONG wait he did jumped. Penat tggu haha



Really love the atmosphere! Since this is a Muslim country you can expect them to sell this thing; pashmina.



Seriously I really love the building here. Maybe because it is white? Maybe haha.


More shops. 

Mostar I'm in LOVE <3 font="">

I am really happy to be able to share this magnificent place here.
And the awesomeness doesn't ends here. Nanti sambung lagi hihi.

Beautiful Mostar #1


Hye~~~~

This post has been in the draft for such a LONG time. Can't really comprehend the busyness with study skrang. Okay let's leave it at that. Today I will continue my summer trip which was around 2 years back and I kinda missed it so much now. So this is like reliving the moment haha.

So after Dubrovnik, the journey continues to Mostar, Bosnia (MY MOST FAVOURITE PLACE). We went there by bus which took about 4/5 hours.

Yg ni kalau drive so kalau naik bas lagi lambat la tambah dgn kena cek kastam lagi haha

We arrived around noon at the bus station. After contacting the Airbnb host, we took a taxi. The taxi there was not like our taxi in Malaysia. They does not have the same car and even not the taxi sign. Being a torn-war country it is much expected. The scenery along the journey I would say quite interesting. It is a balance between being a city and like a village (sort of).



If I'm not mistaken this is a university.


Caught this man posing like he was doing a photoshoot or something haha. Btw i'm in the car

Sampai2 ja situ host airbnb pon jemput. The host, Sejma didn't come but her sister came and greeted us. She showed us around the house which I am really satisfied cause it was big and comfy. Dua tingkat and ada 2 bilik and ruang tamu pun diorg letak katil and ada aircond so tiptop! Haha. Before we started our trip, I have made an arrangement with Sejma and asked her a couple of questions on where to go and everything. They did offer some tour package which cost us around 50 euro each which will cover the whole trip for 2 days. So right after we have finished settled down and refreshes ourselves, we straight away went to Kravice waterfall :D



The sister (I don't remember her name) tapi ada sorang lagi yg akan bawak kitorg yg tu ingat sbb hensem kahkah, Abg Edin hahahahahaha. Serius cair baqhanggg hahaha. Okay berbalik kepada cerita, the journey to Kravice was quite far (that's why they proposed to go here first) but the scenery along the journey was very beautiful nak tido pon xjadi.

Okay I lied. I slept :P

These are some of the houses along the journey to Kravice waterfall. Macam ala2 masuk kampung la gitu




By the way, to go to Kravice, there is no public transport that's why we opt for this package instead. If you go by taxi it will cost you around 60 euro if I am not mistaken hence, our package is kinda cheap sbb p banyak tempat (apadia tu nanti cerita haha). After almost an hour camtu kot kitorg pon sampai. 

Dalam van *credit mint*


Peaceeee. Nasib baik ada photographer haha. See behind us is the waterfall. Freaking huge!


Kravice waterfall was very BEAUTIFUL! Like seriously. It was like a magical place.





The orangputih sunbathing cause it is Summer yaww. *credit mint*




Group photo wajib.

Selpiaq wajib haha

It was unfortunate that we didnt terjun dan mandi. But for me I was afraid cause I cannot swim so being able to witness the magnificent scenery was more than enough for me. To know such place exist that was my #subhanallahmoment

We spent around 2/3 hours here then we went back. This place is really99999 beautiful. If you got the chance to come to Mostar do add this place in your list *kalau boleh mandi lagi best*

Was testing my close-up lense.


Till then~

Dubrovnik, Croatia


Hye again!
Okay harini nak sambung lagi pasal Summer trip haritu. Selepas berhempas-pulas berjalan kaki menghabiskan the entire route of Plitvice National Park, kitorg chow around petang macam tu kot maybe or later than that. Not sure :P 
Sampai2 ja station bus ha kebuloq baqhang. Sumpah lapaq. Mana taknya minum ayaq ja dgn telan roti jalan banyak nak mampoih haha. Lucky for us ada kedai makan kat station bus because we ain’t walkin no more please. Haha. As usual the only food that you can order is either vege or seafood. So we ordered this one big pizza I think it is margerhita or maybe tuna xingat and also fries for each of us. Konon2 ganti nasikla haha. Margherita is just tomato guys so you can eat it. We tried our best to eat very slowly sbb nak lepak lama kat kafe haha. Sbbnya there is no other place that we want to go sbb dh xmau jalan and also sbb nk naik bas malam tu to go to our next destination which is Dubrovnik! Hohoho. 

Excuse muka buruk look at the pizza so BIG hahahaha



So aktiviti menunggu hanyalah scrolling pictures, debating on which photo looks the best, sembang2, review itinerary and trying to sleep haha. It was a very long night for us sbb bas tu is around pukul 1 xsilap. Haha. Luckily, station bas xdkla mcm krik2 sgt. I mean facilities tu adala and quite selesa. Xdakla rasa mcm xselamat ka apa. Tu pun ada few times yg tiba2 org dtg *yg mcm mabuk and try nak bersembang dgn diorg. Cuak jugak tapi jgn make eye contact tu penting hahaha.




After a long awaited moment, bas pun sampai. Naik2 ja bas krohhhh semua ketiduran. Haha. Orang x ramai so boleh duduk sesuka hati haha. Around 7 am rasanya kitorg sampai Dubrovnik stesen bas. It was actually not that far from our reserved Airbnb house. So kitorg pon jalan je saving haha. 

Previously I have contacted the landlord and luckily tak sesat given the direction haha.
The house was actually really convenient in terms of the location although it is quite far from the city itself but for me it was very comfortable sbb x busy and quite safe. The landlady live right next to our house. So it is very easy if something’s happen. The house has only one room if I am not mistaken tapi ada dua katil xsilap. But the landlady provided us with tilam and enough bantal kat ruang tamu. But since the living room is big so it does not takes up that much space.
Since we arrived there early in the morning, we decided to just clean ourselves a lil bit and sightseeing kat city. Sebelum tu menyerok megi dulu satu dua sudu haha. To get to the city, we took a local bus. The bus stop is not that far from our house also. The journey is not that long only a couple of minutes which means the city is actually quite near to our house. Sampai2 ja perghh I have all these images of Game of Thrones in my head playing all over. The feeling is very surreal. Can’t actually believe I am here :D

The castle serve as kubu pertahanan I think because it is located sebelah laut like exactly besides it. The structure I must say it was very well-preserved and looks very classic. The only thing’s missing is the medieval uniform or else we will be a part of that old time haha. Being a fan of GoT I started surveying the price for the GoT tour. Because you can just simply enter some part of this castle on yourselves. Sadly the price is quite high but I don’t remember how much was it. Luckily not that HUGE fan so xproceed haha. Instead we decided to just take a stroll at the city wandering around the castle because there is some area which you can enter. 

To see the view of the castle wholly we need to climb these stairs and some more to get to the top where you can view the overall castle.


okay jom panjat

Dah sampai. See the castle behind us

The castle. Cantek! I can almost imagine Cersei dok kat tingkap overlooking the ocean while planning her devious plan haha


Crystal clear blue sea 

  

These houses were located on the hill on the other side of the castle. The one in front is a hotel expansive one I think.


Dah habis situ we decided to go sightseeing at the city. It was beautiful! The building was white all over. Nampak mcm luas gilaaaa.


Narrow alley everywhere. These are actually shops and some of it are houses.



  
Very well-preserved!


After a while we got hungry and we just go to this one restaurant. Beria pelayan tu promote seafood ni is okay halal la apala haha. Okayla sbb dia tau kami Muslim so dia pun suggest spaghetti seafood sajo hehe.Sedap! 





Dah habis makan sambung lagii. For those who follow GoT, This is the infamous stairs where Cersei walks her Walk of Atonement. I dont know what they actually called it I was about to type Walk of Shame hahahaha



Oh no I am not taking that walk haha :P

Oh. While we are here, we met Yusof an Indonesian who is traveling alone. So yeah lets take a selfie haha. Yusof was traveling alone from Bosnia then here. So cool. He was studying in Paris.



Or Gopro okay haha


This is the other side of the city which Yusof showed us. Nasib baik jumpak Yusof. 










Antek angattttt. And yeah the weather was SuperHOT. haha

Then Yusof brough us here. There is actually people jumping from this cliff into the ocean omaigod. Plus there were women everywhere sunbathing hahahaha. Abaikan gambar yg censored kahkah


After thinking that we have had enough jalan2 and had explored  every inch of the city that we can, beli souvenir then decided to go home. Plus it has been hourssss alreadyy.


This is the entrance to the city



Okay acekewim dulu!

Overall, Dubrovnik city is very magnificent and beautiful! I love how the building still has it aesthetic value which reflects their civilization and identity. Would really love to come back here again simply because of the scenery! 

That's all! Nanti sambung lagi pasal perjalanan kitorg nk balik rumah yg penuh dgn cabaran hahahahaha plus the scenery around our house.
